I like borrowing my housemate's Dwell magazines, but i don't often resonate with the style. it mostly seems uber modern to me and this style often makes me feel too cold. But this feature about designers Helen Rice and Josh Nissenboim and their home in Cherleston had me at hello.
It feels both modern and cozy to me. And i love the older elements of the house that they kept the same.
well, Rice said it best,
"It was our love of the old materials that dictated a lot of the renovation decisions,
we didn't want to alter those elements in any unnatural way. We wanted the space to feel warm but spare, with a mixture of old and new." i'd say they hit the nail on the head.
I think it can be difficult to keep things fresh and modern in a 19th century house (which is what we live in). but this gives me all sorts of inspiration. what do you think?
thanks for reading,
